Far gone are the days when a phone was just a phone! Now, your smartphone is a combination of so many devices, it’s so amazing.
A smartphone is a phone, a radio, a camera, an alarm clock, a watch and so much more.
Today, let’s look at 3 types of apps the healthy living buff can find on iOS or Android phones to help them stay healthy.

Health workers recommend about 2l of water daily for anyone above 13 years and slightly less for children.

A good tracker app will help with this especially if you are just starting a weight loss journey. You will be able to log in everything you eat down to the ingredients used. Examplesare Track, Noom, Food diary, calorie counter…
